The National Religious Party participated in almost all Israeli governments that were formed since the party was founded. Until the eighth Knesset, the NRP was a consistent partner in the governments headed by Mapai (which later became the Alignment), and held the Welfare, Interior, and Religious Affairs portfolios in those governments. After the political "upheaval" of 1977, the NRP took part in the Likud governments that were formed from 1977 to 1984 and held the portfolios of Religious Affairs, Interior, and Education. The National Religious Party was also a partner in the three national unity governments that were formed between 1984 and 1990. During that period, the party held the Ministry of Religious Affairs and had a minister without portfolio. After the 1990 “dirty trick”—a failed attempt by Shimon Peres to overthrow Yitzhak Shamir's government during the 12th Knesset—NRP received the Education Ministry and the Religious Affairs portfolio in the new government that Shamir subsequently formed. After serving in the opposition during the Rabin and Peres governments (1992–1996), the NRP returned to serving in the ruling coalition in the governments of Netanyahu, Barak, and Sharon. It left the Barak and Sharon governments due to political differences.
